ABC Wins Wednesday Night as Its Each Series Grow/"Nashville" Is Up for 3rd Straight Original

As each of its series grew over their most recent original telecasts in early December, ABC won Wednesday night in Adults 18-49 over original programming on each of the other nets, including CBS with The People's Choice Awards.

A note about increasing DVR penetration and year-to-year rating comparisons: Year-to-year rating comparisons based on the Live + Same Day data stream are distorted by the level of DVR penetration in the Nielsen sample, which has jumped up to 47% currently, from 43% at the same point in 2012. More viewers are watching shows on their own timetables, which may not be reflected in the overnight next day numbers. The only truly valid year-to-year comparison would be one based on the Live + 7 Day metric, once those stats are released by Nielsen.
